pack slayer (149.90) vs Pack Attack (98.52)
In what was looking like one of the better games going into the week it never really amounted to much as pack slayer (3-0) came out and dominated from the start. Not only did they win by 50 points but they also did this without S Barkley who was out due to injury. They had an overall solid day from a lot of contributors as they had 8 of their 11 positions post a score of 10 points or better! Tua led the way with 35 points and through three weeks he may have been one of the steals of the draft as that Miami offense looks ridiculous! pack slayer remains one of three remaining undefeated teams which sets up a fun matchup next week against Rapids Plungers who is one of the other remaining undefeated teams! Pack Attack failed to score 100 points for the first time all year and has been leaving some major points on their bench through the first 3 weeks. In Week 2 they left D Swift on the bench and he scored 30.97 points. This week Pack Attack left D Achane on his bench (like most everyone else) and he went off for an insane 63.03 points! I mean that is more points then Starrfavrerodg scored as a team this week! I am not sure I have ever seen a higher discrepancy from a projected points scored vs actual. His projection was 3.82! Achane is now the #3 RB in fantasy through three weeks! Making a bit of a deal about it because I am not sure we will ever see anything quite like that in the near future. If only Pack Attack would have had some foresight and had him in the starting lineup!?
16hrs Ahead of You!! (107.95) vs DaUnderdog (138.64)
This was a big game for DaUnderdog (1-2) as they did not want to fall to 0-3 on the season. They were able to pull off the big win thanks to some unexpected contributors. They got a 29pt effort from A Thielen and 20 points from their Kicker and they got Kelce getting into the end zone for the first time this season which is big news as they will need their #1 pick to be back to his old self for them to continue to compete. 16hrs (1-2) looked to be moving in the right direction after last weeks win but they couldn’t put together back to back wins yet again. They didn’t have a horrible game as they still got over 100 points and they improved their point total again this week but it wasn’t enough to keep up with DaUnderdog and they fall to 1-2 on the season. Both of these teams will be looking to get back to .500 on the season next week.
teamAlaska (148.82) vs Big Papa (68.16)
Things are going from bad to worst quickly for Big Papa as the reigning champ falls to 0-3 and just had their worst scoring week of the season. They have started their quest of a repeat by scoring 76,85 and 68 points and their team hasn’t really showed much to make you think they can overcome this. teamAlaska has been playing fairly well despite their 0-2 start and this week they had their best week of the season to get their first win and move to 1-2. They have gotten better each week and this week they were led by D. Adams and his 43.60 points! They put up 148 points and left A. Cooper and his 23 points on the bench. This is a team that has some pieces and it will be interesting to see if they can keep the momentum going as they go up against Starrfavrerodg next week.
Sportsfreak (149.60) vs BIGBOY! (135.04)
What a game this one turned out to be! I talked about how close these two teams have historically been and how they have most often been in shootout type of games. Well, let’s add another one to the list as Sportsfreak (2-1) gets win #2 on the season thanks to their best performance of the year. Herbert (36.83) and Hill (32.85) were outstanding in this one and managed to get 1/2 of their teams points. This is where I normally talk about how that isn’t sustainable but with the way T Hill and the Dolphins are playing it kind of seems like 30 + points will be be the norm for T Hill this season. Z. Moss has also been a nice find for the Sportsfreak squad as he has put up over 15 points the last two weeks. BIGBOY! (2-1) put up a good fight and you can’t help but wonder what this game would have looked like had J Waddle and Z Jones had played for them. The good news is that they are 2-1 and have C Kupp waiting to join the team hopefully in the near future.
Bossman (157.25) vs PackerFANatic7 (97.58)
So when will some team step up to the plate and actually challenge Bossman? Ok, ok I know that HHH put up a good fight in week 1 but these last two weeks Bossman has been dominating their opponents winning by an average of 64pts! That’s more then Starrfavrerodg scored this week, sorry Starrfavrerodg you may hear that referenced a few times this week. Bossman moves to 3-0 on the season and was led this week once again by K Allen who followed up his 30 point effort last week with a 55 point effort this week. Now, if you want to try and find a negative with this Bossman team it may be that they have been riding the K Allen wave right now. In Week 1 Allen scored 10 points and Bossman scored 107, in week 2 Allen scored 30 and Bossman scored 180 and then this week Allen scored 55 and Bossman scored 157. Can Allen keep this up, likely not. If you are playing Bossman you need to hope Allen has an off week as right now he is cooking!
PackerFANatic7 (1-2) had played in two of the closest games this season in weeks 1 and 2 and then this week happened and they lose by 60! One good thing with that is that didn’t have any stress watching the Monday night game to see if they were going to win or not! They have been struggling to find points through the first three weeks of the season as they have only gone over the century mark 1 time and that was in last weeks win. There is however some reason for optimism that they could improve their scoring as they have been without Ekeler and C Watson for most of the season so far. Those two could be difference makers when they come back.
U Don’t Know (117.51) vs HHH (86.38)
For the first time all season we saw what I am sure U Don’t Know envisioned when they drafted Mahomes and Chase so high and that was both of them scoring in the 25 point range. When you draft a QB as high as Mahomes your expectation is that he will consistently put up solid #’s and I would say for the most part he has however they will be expecting even more from him as the season progresses. The other side is that you also expect your #1 pick to put those same type of #’s and that had yet to happen with J Chase until this week as he put up 24 points and led U Don’t Know to their first win of the season.
HHH has been struggling so far this season as they fall to 0-3. They just haven’t been able to find points and it is somewhat easy to see why. G. Wilson was expected to be a top tier WR but then Rodgers goes down and he is struggling to put up points with Z Wilson at QB. Mattison was someone people were high on this season and while he hasn’t been terrible I think more was expected from him. M Andrews is just getting back into the swing of things from Injury and all that added up leads to not much points scored for HHH to this point. They will be looking to get their first win of the season next week against Pack Attack!
Rapids Plungers (121.96) vs Starrfavrerodg (59.44)
Never in doubt! Rapids Plungers continues to do what they have done seemingly every year and that is win, win and more win! I am thinking that they are seeing Bossman keep winning and they don’t want to fall too far behind for the best winning % in the league so they just continue to keep pace with them. This week was never really in doubt due to the fact that they had a bye week… I mean they played Starrfavrerodg who took a unplanned for bye week or something like that as Rapids Plungers won this one by 60 points thanks to another outstanding game from R Mostert (39.47). Mostert is now your #1 RB in the league through 3 weeks! Great find for Rapids Plungers in the 8th round of the draft and now they get A Kamara back off of his suspension. This team may seems to only be getting better!
For Starrfavrerodg (1-2), I have no clue what that was but I do know it was bad. There was a single player D Achane (63.03 pts) who alone would have beat this team this week! This team has made the playoffs in 2 of their first three seasons in the league but in the time they didn’t they were really bad finishing in last place! I am not saying that is going to happen this season, I am just saying when it gets ugly for them it has tended to get really ugly! They are dealing with some injuries so I do expect better days ahead for them but for now they can’t wait to move on to week 4!
That’s it for this week everyone. Have a great week!
